    Reflecting On How To Be Happy...

    If someone asked me if I was 'happy' I'd probably reply that I'm 'content'. I think happiness is a fleeting thing that exists in the moment. In the pursuit of happiness I think that I will have to create many many 'moments' that give me joy and pleasure; many many moments that...

    Sometimes, you just need to take a step back

    when life gets crazy; breathe in, breathe out and just "be." I have become a much more positive person lately by just simply living each day as they come and trying to stay in each moment as much as possible. When life gets hectic, I just try to breathe, clear my mind, and move...

    As much as I want to,

    there's something inside me holding me back and whispering in my ear that the pain I'm going through right now is good. It scolds me when I eat more than a meal a day or when I think about taking care of myself and thinking more positively. Also, it hates when I sleep a healthy...

    Life is a beautiful gift.
